In the second round of the Women’s EHF Champions League, probably the biggest disappointment of the first round, Thüringer HC travelled to Ljubljana with the hopes to correct last week’s mistakes and grab the first win. The spectators in the Kodeljevo Hall saw two very controversial halftimes. The German champions started the match in a good way, they took an early lead and were in contol of the happenings. However, Krim wasn’t easy to be left behind just like that, they managed to keep an eye on their opponent and were putting pressure on the guests. At halftime, THC led by 2 goals (10-12). The second half then brought a significant change into the game as Krim equalized in the 36th minute and the Germans completely lost the rhythm. Mostly thanks to the goals of Tamara Mavsar and Tjasa Stanko, the Slovenians made a big run in the second period and outplayed the guests (27-20). THC remains still without a win, while Krim collected two important points in Ljubljana.
